1. Praying out loud can help with a wandering mind.
2. Tell yourself you’re talking to God, instead of “praying.” My kids (& mine), prayers seem to have WAY more thought behind them cuz I guess switching my phrasing, switches our brain?
3. Picture Him standing right.in front.of you.
4. He is not a butler, we are not making a food order & leaving, it’s a conversation.
5. BE HONEST! Vent. Tell Him e v e r y t h i n g; when things don’t make sense, what & why things are hard,
This isn’t how things are supposed to be going …!
I’m not where I want to be …!
Things… should be different…! And we plead and we pick apart and we demand why from God or where is God?! …It’s easy to think we know better when we observe things with our mortal eyes and with the knowledge we have been given.
When things don’t seem to add up for us, we ask God why He is doing something a certain way with us or our situations. Like in Jacob, when the laborer asks, “Why are you b
I went to bed a few Saturday’s ago trying to think of an excuse so I wouldn’t have to go to church the next day. I don’t know why, either. I just didn’t wanna go, ya know? Ever get like that? Where you know it’s important to pray and to read, but it doesn’t take away from feeling that you just…don’t want to.
I told that to God as I fell asleep. It was just Gracie and I at church the following day, (Christian had a cold), and I woke up surprisingly anxious to take the sacrame
Hiiiiii! A message from me to YOU as we celebrate Christmas! When we celebrate Christ’s birth, we are celebrating everything we wouldn’t have it it weren’t for Him. Like the many, many years that passed between prophesy and awaiting the star to appear of His birth, let’s not allow passing time to bring doubt or loss of faith in what’s promised to us. <img src="https://i0.wp.com/i.ytimg.com/vi/tnIhgUhtUps/hqdefault.jpg?w=723&ssl=1" loading="lazy" decoding="async" alt="You
I DID IT! I FINALLY EARNED MY YOUNG WOMAN’S MEDALLION! This is a huge deal to me, and my convert heart is elated! It took me 2 months to do the whole thing because I wanted to finish it before Young Woman in Excellence in my ward on November 1st. It was a lot of work. It was most of my nights spent at our kitchen table reading and writing. Just ask Ben, I wasn’t fun to hang out with some nights, haha. But I was totally driven—having that deadline to work towards kept me on tr
As most of you know I’m kind of a freak about my priesthood blessings I get. Ever since I became a member I would have a journal in my lap and write down everything that was said in them as soon as it ended. Just baptized, to me it doesn’t make sense to find out that God Himself speaks directly to us with specific, custom counsel, and not write it down to remember it. How crazy! I have every priesthood blessing ever given to me in a journal so I can go back and read them when
